Family Guy fans question Mila Kunis and Seth MacFarlane’s roles following strikes and backlash

Did Mila Kunis or Seth MacFarlane leave Family Guy? Let’s consider whether the stars and creatives have departed from the iconic American animated sitcom upon the release of the long-awaited season 22.

The fandom is thrilled to welcome Family Guy back to Fox for brand new episodes, and the first episode has already gotten audiences talking. Meg had a baby in episode 1, earning quite the reaction. Speaking of Meg, Mila Kunis took over the role from Lacey Chabert after the very first season. All these years later, however, viewers are asking: Did Mila Kunis or Seth MacFarlane leave Family Guy recently?

Did Mila Kunis leave Family Guy?

No, Mila Kunis has not left Family Guy and continues to voice the role of Meg in season 22.

No announcement has been made in regard to a potential exit from the 40-year-old American actress.

Season 22 episode 1 was actually a Meg-centric installment, with Mila bringing that trademark Meg humor to the table yet again.

Audiences are wondering if Mila left Family Guy after a recent backlash stemming from the criminal sentencing of her former That 70s Show co-star Danny Masterson. He received 30 years to life.

The BBC reports that the Family Guy Meg actress sent letters of support to a judge after Masterson’s conviction.

Did Seth MacFarlane leave Family Guy?

It was announced in May 2023 that Family Guy creator, Seth, was exiting the show alongside other showrunners but only until the Writers Guild of America had reached a new deal with the studios.

He never addressed that he was leaving Family Guy permanently. Rather, he was standing in solidarity and showing support for the writers who began striking as part of the WGA.

That being said, the strike began in May and recently ended on Wednesday, September 27th, 2023, lasting 148 days and resulting in a tentative agreement that means writers can now resume work.

So, Seth is still very much a part of Family Guy and only left the project temporarily.

Is Family Guy renewed for season 23?

Yes, Family Guy has already been renewed for season 23, which means the series has already been confirmed through to 2025.

The decision was announced in January 2023, with FOX greenlighting both seasons 22 and 2023.

Season 22 commenced on Sunday, October 1st, 2023, and will offer audiences 20 episodes in total. With the strikes over, you can expect Seth back at the helm and Mila is also set to reprise her usual role.
